A gem, don't miss it! Like all of the other experiences with Dark Rome-Viator, our guide was excellent, personable and helpful!
This was my absolute favourite tour! Lindy was a fantastic and enthusiastic guide and very knowledgeable. I just wish we had more time!
Our tour of the Villa Gallery was fabulous due, in large part, to our tour guide, Lucas. His deep knowledge and passion for the the paintings and sculptures made them truly 'come alive' for us. Great job, Lucas! The Villa grounds were beautiful...such a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The Smiths, Huntsville, AL
This tour was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on both the art as well as the history of the Borghese family. The Bernini sculptures at this gallery are well worth the visit.
This was the first of our three Viator tours of Rome. Wow! This one blew us away. The Borghese Gardens were beautiful although we were somewhat disappointed that these were not beautiful gardens but rather a park with trees. Our tour guide Lindee was totally amazing. Her background in Art History was perfect for this incredible walk through the Borghese Gallery which contained some of the most amazing artists and sculptors of The Renaissance. Her dramatic telling of the Borghese family and the Pope was absolutely riveting. Although we were somewhat familiar with the artists, we had little knowledge of the sculptors. Lindee showed us what to look for when looking at the sculptures of Benigni and we have a whole new appreciation for these works of art. She was captivating throughout the entire tour and her beautiful personality and enthusiasm made this tour one of our favorites!!!!
Excellent. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. He really gave a great tour.
This was a lovely tour - the art in this gallery is magnificent, particularly the Bernini sculptures. It's very difficult to rock up to this gallery and get tickets (limited entries). The gardens are beautiful, though it is more park than gardens, but very worth it.
Our lovely guide loved her job and her knowledge was extensive and her kindness made me consider a Viator next time. It was an amazing experience.
Louise is an excellent guide, with the personality and knowledge to give real insight into the subject. She had a wealth of anecdotes and back stories that added so much to all that we saw. We are fairly new to Viatours and the local guides you use never fail to impress.
Absolutely loved the gallery tour! Our guide Luciana (i think) was extremely good, her knowledge and explanations was top notch, the paintings and sculptures breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour for all art lovers.
Our tour was led by a lady from Toronto who made the tour light,interesting and informative. An expensive tour,but worth the money. The quality of the exhibits,especially the Caravagios and the Bernini sculptures were my main reasons for visiting this gallery and I was not disappointed.
Anyone who goes to Rome and misses the Borghese Gallery misses one of the finest attractions in the city. Bernini's sculpture's are amazing . The details he manages to capture are incredible. Caravaggio's and Raphael's paintings are almost as impressive.
We were on a two week tour of Italy and had 10 different tour guides that I would rate good to excellent. However, Violet, our guide at the Borghese was extraordinary. She was extremely well versed in the subject matter and had a personality that exuded warmth and friendliness. You should go to great lengths to keep her.
